There is officially snow on the ground in New York City… and we all know what that means. Tonight, you’re most likely going to cozy up on the couch and watch re-runs of your favorite TV show on Netflix. Don’t be that person! Take advantage of the bustling city right outside your window—even when it’s a chilling 20 degrees outside. Need a little cold weather inspiration? We’ve put together a list of five fun ways to escape the snow and stay entertained.
AMC Loews 84th St. 6 Movie Theater
Plush reclinable seats, curly fries, and a new release? You will never want to go back to an ordinary movie theater again! You can even reserve your choice of seat in advance, so you’re guaranteed to get the best view in the house.
Bowlmor Chelsea Piers
Pier 60, 23rd Street
Rally your friends together and head to Bowlmor at Chelsea Piers for some old school fun. In the evenings, Bowlmor turns into an adults only (yes, that means there will be alcohol) fun zone. And if you want to try something a little more adventurous, there’s also a NYC-themed laser tag arena, as well as a 1500-square-foot rope course.
43 Mercer Street
Feeling bold? Why not try something a little more risqué on a cold, snowy day. The iconic adult store, Babeland, offers fun classes such as “The Art of Great Sex” and “Sequins and Sex Tips: The Babeland Burlesque Show” where professionals in this arena offer tips and tricks for various bedroom activities.
Brooklyn Night Bazaar
165 Banker Street
Beat the cold and pick up a few locally made souvenirs at this lively indoor bazaar located in Williamsburg. Brimming with a variety of vendors offering everything from natural soaps to handcrafted jewelry—and plenty of nibbles—it’s the perfect way to unwind after long day at the office.
79 N 11 St.
Beer enthusiasts and history buffs will enjoy taking a tour through Brooklyn Brewery’s Williamsburg headquarters. Offering four different brews, plus a variety of salty and sweet snacks, it’s the ideal spot to catch up with a group of pals and watch the snowfall outside.
